UPDATE: The forum is currently closed to new members, until I have time to update the backend that runs it. People are still sending in join requests though, so I've closed the comments here for now. When the forums re-open, you'll hear it on the main site. In the meantime, if you want to join a Just Bento community and you're on Facebook, please consider following the Facebook Page.

Official announcements and so on.
With the growing popularity of Just Bento and the forum, we have some idiots joining here trying to spoil things for everyone. We try to stamp out the spammers as fast as possible, but sometimes we can't see what they are doing, such as when they spam individual forum members.
If you are spammed in a private message, or see a spammy comment or topic posted, please report the user here. Thanks!
Our aim is to have a comfortable, friendly and spam-free community. To this end, here are some simple rules.
As you know, Japan was hit by a devastating earthquake on March 11, 2011. The epicenter was off the north-eastern coast of Honshu, the main island of the Japanese archipelago. Much of that coastline has been destroyed. Thousands are dead, more are still missing. There are supply-line problems due to destroyed harbors and damaged roads (now gradually getting solved) that are causing more people to suffer and even die. And there's the ongoing, serious situation at the Fukushima No. 1 (Daiichi) nuclear power plant.
